Your Word is alive and activeIt’s sharper than any double-edged swordIt judges the thoughts and attitudes of our hearts (Hebrews 4:12). We long to align ourselves spiritually with You and Your Word. We want to pray your Word with Your authority, and with greater faith and obedience in our lives. Lord, we want to be passionate about the things you are passionate about. We want to be students of Your Word. Teach us to pray Paul’s apostolic prayers with power and faith. Teach us to pray the hymns from the book of Revelation with reverence and awe. Teach us to pray Your Word out loud in such a way that we see mighty spiritual breakthroughs in our House of Prayer. Help us declare the prophetic promises and decrees from Your Word.

We want to experience the “zoe”, life-giving power of Your Word on a daily basis. Show us truth in Your Word, and bring it to life through our prayers. Let us be ones who have learned to pray Your Word out loud, continually experiencing life-giving, “zoe” revelation through our prayers. Thank you so much for Your Word. It is precious to us. We rejoice in following Your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. We meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways. We delight in Your decrees. We will not neglect Your Word. Open our eyes that we may see wonderful things in Your law. We run in the path of Your commands, for You have set our hearts free (Psalm 119:14-16, 18, 32). In Jesus’ name, amen.

Verses to Memorize

“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe” (Ephesians 1:17-19a).
